Does the laptop have a function (fn) key along with a picture of a monitor (possibly an F1-F12) key, that in used combination switches from Laptop to TV or Both?

You have to set up the screen resolution to match what the TV is capable of displaying; ie, if it is an HDTV, then HD resolutions are 1280x720 or 1920x1080.
